Ken Hensley founded the band Live Fire in 2006, recorded the studio album "Faster" with them and regularly went on concert tours with them. During the promotion tour 2012, where the band performed mainly in Germany, but also did some gigs in Switzerland, they offered some songs of the longplayer like "Curse" and "Set Me Free (From Yesterday)". However, the title of the latter song could not be taken literally. The majority of the program, whose 14 tracks were distributed on two CDs, consisted of old material such as "Blood On The Highway". And then there were also Uriah Heep songs to the last wave, which were presented in a much more differentiated way in contrast to the still touring Heep and garnished with imaginative improvisations (for example "Stealin'"). "Gypsy", "July Morning", "The Wizard" or "Look At Yourself" and the newly arranged "Lady In Black" sound modern, but not overly hard. A recommendable album with a booklet and atmospheric photos.
